I saw those MOMO seats (several) at a shop in CA. In my case (choptop and on the chunky side) I'm passing on them but maybe you'll like these?

Oh, I see your dilemma. Yeah, the ones I were sitting in are different but they do come in custom one colored styles and the backside are real carbon at $1300 a seat! The chrome plated hareware is the complet package.

From Amida "Dash making Perfectionist"

I've been working on the switch design prototype for the dash. Attached a couple pics. The original Ferrari switch is on the left. The round recessed area on the prototype is where the new graphics will be placed. I think it should work fine. I'll still need to build a mould & pop out a few copies before I can design the switch panel for it.

Got Momo Corse's delivered today - I like them a lot. Much better than my current Momo's. Can't gain any weight though as they are a very snug fit. Anyone interested in my other Momo's let me know - $300.00 for both plus shipping.

Scaffold? Can't work as fast as i can with setup and takedown of scaffolding. Used them years ago and found i can save more time than you can imagine and make lot more money leaving the scaffold at home.
To keep a wet edge I have no time to mess around with scaffooling.

I know some of you might think that pic of me spraying on the ladders looks dangerous. But in the picture I'm just moving from one ladder to the next one and I have been doing this for so long I don't go down and back up anymore - I just hop to the next one and have one of my employees on the ground move ladders ahead of me. Now about getting wet - The only one that needs to get wet is my friend Ted Batchelor whom I bought my painting company from. He currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest full-body burn without oxygen. 2 minutes 38 seconds - July 17, 2004

Ted all wrapped up before burn and me the timer.

Dash update -

Upper dash surface created off of 355 dash mold.


Switches with graphics applied. Very accurate to original F40 switches.

Hello as said before its Wolfgangs car. Its not built to fit on a stock fiero chassis as its lenghten and cut down in the back window area. As far as I know hes out of business nor do I know where the molds are just that he owes me for three rear louvered windows but that was a long time ago. Thanks Norm


From what I understand, Wolfgang made molds for the F40 and the 308. His molds were so close that Ferrari themselves had their lawyers go after him. In a deal of some sort, they had to crush the molds.

First and foremost Bob, great job on the build, the F-40 replica looks very convincing. I am in year 2 of my build and have reached a financial restriction forcing me to sell. I stumbled upon your build a week or so ago in my never ending search for others like myself. I have done many custom modifications that really add to the authentic look of the F-40. I have removed the rear trunk area re-welding with sheets of steel to recreate an authentic rear end also installing a custom rear strut tower bar that looks like the one on the real F-40. Also I have created rear windows instead of the side sills that are painted black to give the appearance of a tinted window. All panels are installed with the exception of the rear bumper which I can install if needed. The car is based off of a 1986 Fiero V-6 chassis. I have many upgrades which include: 1992 corvette motor, V-8 Archie install kit with many of the upgrades, electric water pump, upgraded starter, oil relocation kit, urethane cradle mounts, new wiring harness, urethane transmission mounts, upgraded high flow fuel pump, Archie 4 core radiator, headers, MSG ignition cables, new NGK plugs, and shifter cables. The engine, transmission, cradle, and engine bay have been painted in black 3+ coats; with the valve covers in red. The motor is installed on cradle and is in the car ready to run. The suspension has been upgraded to koni shocks & struts, lowered front end and adjustable coilovers in rear. The wheels are manufactured by Compomitive which measure rear 17x13 rear and 17x8 in front which is true to the real F-40. The rubber that surrounds the wheels is the Michelin MXX series which was included on the original F-40s 235x45x17 front and 335x35x17 in the rear. Additionally I have in the interior a replica fiberglass dashboard and a Momo leather steering wheel with OEM Ferrari horn button and two Sablet 3inch 5 point harnesses. I also have many OEM Ferrari parts that I can include in the purchase. I have the OEM F-40 muffler, OEM F-40 clutch and brake pedals, OEM rear tail lights (red and the amber), OEM emblems for noise, rear script, and the "designed by". Also I have the replica metal shields, and carbon fiber F-1 mirrors. I think that about sums this up. If you guys are interested please email me or call me for pricing, Pictures, and additional details. JHover83@yahoo.com - (630) 802-1313.

I was so glad to come home today and see my two new rear tires. I tried a different tire company (TireSavings.com). I used to always use Tirerack but was able to get these about $ 25.00 cheaper per tire as compared to Tirerack. They are also different from my old rear Michelin Pilot Sports. These are Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's 335/35/17 that are supposed to be a little better on wear and little less road noise. Here are some pics - Gotta love the width.

Pfieffer (sp?) Road is what I meant. You mentioned you are a painter and I see a painters van there often (yeah I am stalking you lol), but there is also a Testarossa replica there, and you never mentioned you had one. Good work on the dash, it looks dead on.

Yes, yes. To Rob you go to. Powerful dashmaker is he. Powerful dashmaker. I have his 355 dash sitting at home right now awaiting installation once I finish everything else on the car. I've never seen it's equal.

Went to a car show today and saw a pair of real F40s.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/067545.html

Man were they sweet ! Talked to one of the owners for a good bit and he told me the think drives like it is on rails !

The massive 13" wide wheels were really impressive.
